Bargrennan Bridge

Middle Bridge of Cree, perhaps more commonly known as Bargrennan Bridge carries the A714 across the River Cree in the tiny village of Bargrennan. It is a single span stone arch built of plain rubble, with a slightly humper profile over the centre of the arch. The parapets extend some distance beyond the abutments, that at the south east corner flaring out to accommodate the curve of the road on the south bank of the river, although whether this flare is original or a later modification to improve visibility around the bend is uncertain. Unlike many of the other stone arches in the area, Bargrennan Bridge maintains a centre line on the roadway, suggesting it is a little wider than its near neighbours. The inside faces of the parapets are painted in alternate black and white vertical stripes, as is common in the area.
